Just add a
extern int is_sony_vaio_laptop; /* set in DMI table parse routines */
line somewhere at the beginning of the file drivers/char/sonypi.c

Looks like the driver sync between Linus and Alan was incomplete
this time (Linus took the sonypi driver changes but not the dmi_scan
routine changes).

I won't submit a patch to Linus for now, I'm pretty sure that
Alan will take care of this for -pre2.
